Quotes of The Day

Quote I

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. Winston Churchill


Quote II

Islam is something we can't afford any more in the Netherlands. I want the fascist Koran banned. We need to stop the Islamisation of the Netherlands. That means no more mosques, no more Islamic schools, no more imams... Not all Muslims are terrorists, but almost all terrorists are Muslims.Geert Wilders


Quote III

’m tired of being told how bad America is by leftwing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the religious freedom and women’s rights of Saudi Arabia, the economy of Zimbabwe, the freedom of the press of China, the crime and violence of Mexico, the tolerance for Gay people of Iran, and the freedom of speech of Venezuela. Won’t multiculturalism be beautiful? Robert A. Hall

*****

Dangerous woman meets dangerous man. Mark Steyn's take on the Manchester terrorist attack.

A few weeks ago the BBC reported that "approximately 850 people" from the United Kingdom have gone to Syria and Iraq to fight for Isis and the like. That's more volunteers than the IRA were able to recruit in thirty years of the "Troubles", when MI5 estimated that they never had more than a hundred active terrorists out in the field. This time maybe it's the exotic appeal of foreign travel, as opposed to a month holed up in a barn in Newry.

Carrying on in Germany, Angela Merkel pronounced the attack "incomprehensible". But she can't be that uncomprehending, can she?

Yes, yes she can. It seems almost all elected officials are that uncomprehending.

Manchester, Westminster, Paris, Brussels, it's all the same isn't it?

Tomorrow marks a monumental cinema anniversary. May 25, 1977 Star Wars opens.

On this day in 1977, Memorial Day weekend opens with an intergalactic bang as the first of George Lucas’ blockbuster Star Wars movies hits American theaters.

The incredible success of Star Wars–it received seven Oscars, and earned $461 million in U.S. ticket sales and a gross of close to $800 million worldwide–began with an extensive, coordinated marketing push by Lucas and his studio, 20th Century Fox, months before the movie’s release date.

How to make it as a left-wing polemicist.

Do you seek validation? Are you hungry for permanent and hip confrontational posturing? Still having dreams about the glory of radical nonconformity? Eager to purge your upper-middle class and white guilt? Want to do something new with your life, but want to rely on the skills you already have instead of learning new ones?

I’ve got just the thing for you: become a left-wing critic of the mainstream American Left. It’s easy, really, and no matter what, your Twitter following will increase at least five-fold

The ONT feels better, hope you do to. Arctic ice won't disappear until 2040.

The last piece of summer sea-ice in the Arctic is expected to melt away in just 23 years, three decades earlier than previously expected.

Scientists now believe that the summer of 2040 will see the end of the frozen north pole after a rapid shrinking of the ice coverage in recent years, according to a report from the Arctic Council.

*****

Fauxoahontas Elizabeth Warren's Indian ancestry challenged.

A candidate for the 2018 U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts tweeted out a video on Sunday challenging Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) to prove her claims of having American Indian heritage.

V.A. Shiva, who is seeking the Republican nomination in 2018 and has claimed he invented email, filmed himself holding a "23andMe" DNA testing kit, which he claims requires only his saliva and a "few short days" to prove if he was a real Indian. Shiva was born in Bombay, India, while Warren's claim is about having American Indian, or Native American, heritage.

*****

Dumb Bitch Nancy Pelosi opens mouth, shit flows forth.

At the end of her mumble jumble, she made a shocking statement. According to Pelosi, the National Rifle Association is now a part of the intelligence community.

Yes, you read that right. The intelligence community…like the National Security Agency (NSA) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

*****


Previously covered in The ONT: If it fits, you must acquit.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A man claiming his girlfriend accidentally died by choking on his penis during oral sex two years ago has been found not guilty of murder, CNN reports Tuesday.

Richard Patterson, 65, was charged with second-degree murder in the October 2015 death of his girlfriend, Francisca Marquinez, 60. He was found not guilty by a Florida jury on Monday.

*****

With friends like this who needs Democrats? RINOs push for carbon tax.
A group of old-guard, “swamp” Republicans calling themselves the Climate Leadership Council (CLC) has joined climate alarmists, including failed Democratic Party presidential candidate Al Gore, in calling for a tax on carbon-dioxide emissions. The group claims increasing CO2 emissions pose a threat for Earth’s people, animals, and plants

What type of music do you listen to? Do you find new music via streaming services?
Or do you think that streaming services devalue the find?

"The problem with streaming [music], in my opinion, is when a fan has access to millions and millions of songs, it essentially devalues the music. As a music fan growing up in the 70s, as a teenager, I would take the train into Chicago ... tracking down one or two singles. I would have invested an entire day tracking down a song, so I have a deeper relationship with that song. I think the problem right now is that fans take music for granted, so it has less value.

Your humble Cob disagrees. What are your thoughts?

The ONT Musical Interlude

May 24, 1941, Born on this day, Robert Zimmerman, (Bob Dylan) US folk singer, songwriter. Released over 40 albums since 1964, major influence on The Beatles and The Rolling Stones during the 60's. Biggest hit is 1965 US No.2 single 'Like A Rolling Stone', 1969 UK No.5 single 'Lay Lady Lay', 1964 UK No.1 album 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan'. 2006 album 'Modern Times' entered the US chart at No.1. Also a member of The Traveling Wilburys.



May 24, 1968, The Rolling Stones released the single 'Jumpin Jack Flash' in the UK, the track gave them their seventh UK No.1 hit. Keith Richards has stated that he and Jagger wrote the lyrics while staying at Richards' country house, where they were awoken one morning by the sound of gardener Jack Dyer walking past the window. When Jagger asked what the noise was, Richards responded: "Oh, that's Jack – that's jumpin' Jack."

The nice thing about government workers. They know everything.

What is this?

“Do you need to know or do you want to know?” said Cohn.

I’m curious, she replied.

“It’s a 3-D print-out of an adult mouse penis.”

A what?

“A 3-D print-out of an adult mouse penis.”

Oh no it isn’t.

“It is.”

The officer called over three of her colleagues and asked them to guess what it is. No one said anything, so Cohn told them. They fell apart laughing.

My first memories of James Bond movies were with Roger Moore and not Sean Connery. James Bond and his memorable gadgets.

*****


Will draining the Swamp increase the Federal Prison System population?

Yingst also says the possibility of criminal prosecution is on the table. If true, that’s good news.

Leaking that Trump screamed at the television when he saw a report on James Comey’s investigation is not a crime. However, leaking classified information without authorization is.

I'm not holding my breath, but I can wish, can't I?

That these people are clueless. I listen to a lot of different stuff. But I love old music. Without YouTube streaming, would I be able to stretch forth my hand and listen to Les Elgart at a moments notice after hearing a song of his on a podcast? Nope.

Another example. There is a particular version of Stabat Mater by Pergollesi (sp?) That I love. Could not find the cd. Took me a while, but I found it on YouTube.

We live in a truly blessed time for music and knowledge and art. Enjoy it.

26 Yes, there is too much music in this country. We need singers, songwriters, and musicians to be licensed and certified. They need to be experts in their genre. In this economy, people can't afford the mistake of buying poorly written and performed entertainment.

Might as well license movie studios while we're at it. Who wants another Star Wars debacle like the last one.

Peer reviewed, by experts to insure a quality entertainment experience. That's what we need, not thousands of garage bands screaming in the night.

Joyce is still at Shands: her CT scan results showed that she has had a pulmonary embolism in addition to the leg clots. Earliest discharge is likely tomorrow (Thursday) or Friday.

She will need anticoagulation from here on out; this is typically a shot once or twice a day (kind of like insulin).

Please pray for renewed strength and healing.

--Eh, I agree, mostly. For example I hang on to my LP of Learning to Walk not just because the music kicks ass (hey, I can enjoy the music part any time on Youtube https://youtu.be/nfK4JI_s6pk), or even the sentimental value of my brother giving it to me when I turned 21 (I haven't taken good care of a lot of such gifts), but back in the early '90s it took serious hunting prowess to get imported music. Today even without streaming such purchases are a few clicks away without even leaving home.

Well, they eat a vegetarian diet, and are pretty fatty, so my guess is that they taste like black bear. Or racoon.

Nail the shad to a cedar plank, roast the fish for 15 minutes over a low fire, throw away the shad and eat the plank.

69 meh, at first glance that cabin has an idyllic sense about it, then you start to notice things. the forest grows right up to the walls and over the roof. there is probably no back door. the lake is right up to the front door.

basically no security perimeter. no fields of fire. no escape from any type of assault. someone could drop a tree on you. minor flood washes you away. pretty good place to get murdered.

I'd rather jump out the window into the pool.

77 That cabin is better built than the unabomber's retreat. But in needs to be on stilts. If the beaver dam up the outlet, his cabin floats away. One spring flood, and his cabin floats away.

IF he is downstream of the reservoir, he needs to make sure the county/state maintains the dam and spillway. We had one go bad and a lot of people lost their cabins. Those above the dam, lost their waterfront beaches when the lake turned into a creek bed 500 feet away.

96 "The problem with streaming [music], in my opinion, is when a fan has access to millions and millions of songs, it essentially devalues the music. As a music fan growing up in the 70s, as a teenager, I would take the train into Chicago ... tracking down one or two singles. I would have invested an entire day tracking down a song, so I have a deeper relationship with that song. I think the problem right now is that fans take music for granted, so it has less value.

Your humble Cob disagrees. What are your thoughts?


There is still plenty of hard to find stuff, even in this age of steaming and torrenting.

If anything, Youtube has helped music more by giving bands a chance to reach out directly. I got introduced to a lot of newer and older bands by simply following recommended videos. It also let me decide which band i liked based on more than some radio blurb or snippet. Honestly, it's opened my eyes to a lot of really good bands.

I remember the dark days of the mid-'90's when KNAC was killed off, all the Metal mags disappeared, and Headbangers Ball was unceremoniously dropped. If anything, I appreciate getting a chance to listen to good music more than ever.

147 Your humble Cob disagrees. What are your thoughts?
------

Well, there is a difference. In the one case, one holds in one's hands the actual music/performance. The squiggles and substance of a record are different than the unimaginable collection of digital bits invisibly stored in a smidget of silicon chip. The one is an analog of the performance, the other is a mishmash of stuff assembled by who-knows-what means.

When one has the record, one has a sense of possession which is lacking entirely with digital storage...even with CD's.

By way of example, I have the Lightfoot album 'Sit Down Young Stranger'. This was later released as 'If You Could Read My Mind'. If something were to happen to that album it would not amount to any significant financial loss, but I would certainly feel a sense of loss.

Conversely, if I had an MP3 that for some reason was sucked into the cyber nether regions, I would feel no sense of loss at all. I think that like most everything, if one has a personal hands-on association with anything, then it is held in higher regard.

There is a sense of 'ownership' that goes with a record that does not exist with most digital formats, and particularly downloaded/streamed things.

160 The problem with streaming [music], in my opinion, is when a fan has access to millions and millions of songs, it essentially devalues the music.

That darn competition!!

This is why programming will always be a business. People who have an ear for things will always have work finding music for people who don't have the time or energy to look through the vast amount available, themselves. This is also why many people need actual "channels" rather than just having access to 40,000 movies. There is a decent amount of work involved in selecting what to watch, when, and most people don't want to, or can't, do that themselves.

Hard to say. Gianforte had a small lead going into this kerfuffle but who knows how it will unfold. It is being covered by all the state media outlets.

There's at least one eyewitness who backs up Gianforte's version of events, that the Guardian reporter, who apparently is gay, was acting in a very antagonistic manner towards Gianforte (who is a fundamentalist Christian) and that the Guardian only released a selected part of the audio, leaving out the parts that show that this reporter in a bad light.

We'll see. I'm not changing my vote over this. This is the sort of staged thing that the Guardian and Buzzfeed would do to help the Democratic party. That's my take of it.

gingrich was very perceptive and complementary on trump's foreign trip and wants to see that success carry over on the domestic front. but he points out the reps in congress bend over for the dems, have no leadership or direction. i think gingrich could help bring that focus and unity.

It's really great to hear a new song and absolutely love it from the first play. Then I get it, it goes into my playlist, and I play it to death, because that's how I "program"

EXCLUSIVE: In the biggest deal made at this Cannes Film Festival, Bona Film Group has closed a deal near $80 million to lead the investment on director Roland Emmerich's next feature Midway, based on the seminal WWII battle, for The Mark Gordon Company.

The Chinese company has acquired worldwide distribution rights excluding the U.S., and Bona will release the film in China. Wes Tooke wrote the script, and Bona's Yu Dong will produce with Emmerich, MGC's Mark Gordon and Matt Jackson, along with Harald Kloser. CAA brokered the deal and will rep the U.S. rights.

The film is an epic telling of the Battle of Midway, a turning point in the Pacific theater of World War II. The story follows the real soldiers and aviators who pulled off the unbelievable to turn the tide of the war in June 1942. Emmerich and Gordon are extending a their relationship that began with The Day After Tomorrow and 2012. Josh Clay Phillips will oversee the project on behalf of MGC.

296 My take on streaming music is that it's an amazing bounty for people who love music and are curious about it. To have millions of songs literally at your fingertips and therefore able to listen to anything on a whim has been a boon. I have Spotify and I've been exposed to so much new and old music--things I'd always heard about , but never heard before.
That said, there is something about doing the legwork in seeking out music. I too used to take a bus to a record store the next town over just to by a couple of singles, or an album when I had enough cash. You do tend to appreciate music more when you have to put in the effort to acquire it. And you had to listen to an album all the way through many times until it became embedded in your brain. I think any listener going through that could appreciate Spotify or YouTube.

But younger people today probably do take it for granted and expect it to be free, so Gene Simmons has a point. But I've spent thousands of dollars over 40 years buying singles, albums, cassettes and CD's, so I feel no guilt about getting it free now.

Left wing and right wing are words that don't really work anymore. The original context was monarchists vs. republicans and everyone else, in France.

We never had an equivalent of the monarchists in the USA. We were always, by their terms, left and further left.

Except now, we have a party whose base stands for the Constitution, freedom of speech, etc... and one that stands for the rule of the masses by an unaccountable, all-powerful state.

Our political language is 100% backwards. According to the original definitions, we're the left, and the "Our Socialism Is Different!" authoritarian collectivists that call themselves Democrats are the right.

321 Why do I bring up the left wing/right wing thing?

To point out that we cling to our labels too much, even when they no longer serve their purpose.

There's another label that is no longer useful as well: Conservative.

To be a conservative is to want to preserve the status quo, and the status quo is now authoritarian globalism. To want to preserve this liberty-destroying Leviathan would be madness.

The Ryans and McConnells of the world present themselves as conservatives, so we should let them keep the label, along with all of the shame they have brought it.

It's long past time for us to re-brand. Our ideas are the best and newest thing in all of human relations - the idea that man can govern himself without the input of bureaucrats in a distant Capitol, but the packaging is terrible, and that's why nobody's buying.

322 For all with CD collections, I'm envious. But you probably do not/would not feel the same about that data if it were stored on an MP3 player, or thumb drive, etc., would you? I'm a little dubious that one would feel the same attachment, but maybe.

but I have no use for music snobs who look down on folks who don't get everything on virgin vinyl and ..who don't have high-end stereo equipment.

Posted by: Captain Whitebread

I have no use for snobs of any stripe. All of my records are the original stuff, and none are what I would call pristine. All of my gear dates from the 80's and no one would give it a second glance.

Truthfully, the more esoteric the equipment, the more likely I am to look down my nose at the owner.

When some guy tells me that his AC power cords are all 12ga., oxygen free cable, and he can *really* notice the difference, I merely express my envy for his finely tuned ear.

I had a guy wax euphoric over the improved quality that he experienced when he replaced the output amp in his CD player with a tube amp. "It's astonishing", he said. I could only agree.

But look, if one had placed before them a new, sealed CD and a new sealed LP of, say, 'Blood on the Tracks' (or whatever), and you could have either, but not for selling, which would you choose?

I might be wrong, but I'm inclined to believe that most would like to have the LP.

Back to MH's point, I suppose that the music is the music, without regard to the 'physical' format, but I have this sense that being invested in the music encompasses more than just hearing it or liking it. It's, no doubt, all personal.

330 >Except now, we have a party whose base stands for the Constitution, freedom of speech, etc

the base does, some of the local parties still do...the natl party, not so much

Left and Right were already poorly defined when Nolan and Pournelle (both very smart guys, btw) complicated them even more by adding a second axis.

It should be an easy definition; the more state control, the more to the Left; the more individual liberty, the more to the Right

Commies to the far left, Anarchists to the far Right. Economic controls are by definition to the Left (an "Anarcho-socialist" is a contradiction in terms).

The other axis is secondary characteristics; racism, nationalism, etc...these can go pretty anywhere on the spectrum ( well, except maybe anarchists aren't causally nationalists)

Leftists tell me all the time that this definition isn't right, but they can never explain WHY...lol

This was only the third time Dylan played electric in public. The first set was acoustic and the second set was electric.

The first time he played electric was at Newport, a short set since the band didn't have time to rehearse very many songs. The second time was at Forest Hills, NY on 8/28/65, but the only known recording is an audience tape of dreadful quality. The Hollywood Bowl concert was mostly the same set list as Forest Hills.

354 Hey everybody.

Re CD collections: I have one. :-)

But I refuse to be a snob about systems. I remember back in the 1980s reading Stereo Review. There were certainly components I drooled over... but at a certain point, even then as a teenager, I thought a lot of the "reasons" why, for instance, a McIntosh amp sounded better than a Yamaha amp, were either mindbendingly subjective at best or pure bullshit at worst.

Today between a decent desktop computer and a good pair of headphones, I'd say most people have a system that would have gotten at least an 'A' rating in stereo sound fidelity throughout most of the heyday of component systems of the 1960s through the 1990s.

Fake News is, as is typical now, going full-bore on this Fake Assault on a leftist fake reporter by a GOP candidate in a special election.

These people on cable fake news are just running their mouths with no evidence.

There is an audio recording (that is probably edited by The Guardian) that offers zero conclusive evidence BUT it does in fact tell us that The Guardian has harassed this Republican before.

Instead of "Fake News", use the words Yellow Journalism. They still teach about that in school, or at least they did about 15 years ago. Gen X-ers and early Millenials will know that it's a thing that has happened before, and are more likely to take a more critical look at the media if you call their attention to it.

445 I think 1965-66 were the greatest years for rock music.

First Bob Dylan came along ans made a name for himself as a songwriter. Many other artists covered his songs, and had hits with them.

Then came the British Invasion, and bands like the Beatles, Stones, and Kinks became very popular.

Then Dylan decided to try his hand at rock music, and took it to a whole new level. Everyone else then had to scramble to keep up. There was quite a rivalry in those days. There ensued a burst of creativity that I don't believe has ever been equaled.

Well, most of it is just out-takes and jams; it's normal to have plenty of stuff like that.

I think we have almost everything on bootlegs, but Thor likes to support them by buying shit, hoping to encourage them to release what few concerts they are sitting on.

He is really wanting the full Royal Albert Hall, but I think that must be tied up legally somehow or they'd have released it already.

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at May 25, 2017 12:01 AM (evJdV)

471 457, from what I've read, Prince wanted to release everything at once. His label wanted him to slow it down, which I don't think was bad advice

479 I've also read that when Freddy Mercury found out he was terminal with AIDS, instead of going to his mansion and kicking around waiting to die...

He got the rest of Queen into the studio and asked them (which they did) to get as many songs written and recorded as they absolutely possibly could, so that he could still sing lead on them. That way, the band could keep releasing "new" FM/Queen albums for at least several years.

539 Here's a riddle.

I have a highly pronounced case of tinnitus.

But I can also astonish the techs when I sit in the audiologists' booth, and respond to freakishly low and high signals.

The brain is an amazing thing. I know I have the tinnitus. So, I've learned to "listen around it", so to speak.

It's similar to peripheral vision. All of our eyes take in pretty much the same scope of vision.

Since early teens though, I've trained my mind to "see" my visual field, edge to edge, top to bottom.

Long before I knew what "situational awareness" was, I was well into developing it as a habit.

While I can initially and superficially agree, upon longer reflection, I cannot.

Honda, among all Japanese vehicle companies, has a freakishly daunting record of "getting it right" in the learning curve in the U.S. market, with very few real bobbles along the way. First generation Ridgeline, chief among 'em.

Both Toyota and Nissan are pushing out full size half ton pickups. Nissan's, with a Cummins diesel, amazingly enough. They're not quite Super Duty rivals, but they're clawing their way up the ladder.

I don't think Honda pretends to that throne.

Watch for Honda to fill the void left by the Sport Trak, the S-10 and even to shoulder aside the Tacoma and Frontier.

Suburbanites who need to haul some kids, camping gear, Home Depot bags o' soil, etc.

Toyota's products have largely, never been as fun to drive or as tight in design as Honda's. Quality? They're neck n' neck.

The 2nd gen. Ridgeline won't be a big RV puller.

But it'll damn well pull in some pretty damned impressive sales numbers.

If you get a chance to drive one, do. I have (by invitation), and it is a very attractive package, in both form and function.

605 520 ... "It's more a matter of tone and depth to my ear, not so much being able to hear more actual parts."

Tammy, you expressed it better than I did with "tone and depth". I can hear all the parts but the mid-levels are muted and all the parts lack some degree of depth. That's where the good headphones are great. Being able to hear the overtones and undertones of individual instruments, as well as the cumulative effect of chordal structure (more than the sum of the notes) is wonderful.

To use your complaint about electric pianos. Listen to some Baroque chamber music played on period correct instruments vs. modern ones. It makes a noticeable difference. Or the sound of a string bass in a jazz combo vs. an electric bass. Electric instruments are better than they were 30 years ago and it makes it easier to balance the volume of each instrument. But there is a little less depth with the electronics which diminishes the overall effect.

Honda doesn't need to make trucks. It's outside their core competency as a car company. They have done fine for decades with economy cars, mid-range cars, and luxury compacts.

Nissan and Toyota have made trucks for longer than Honda has made cars.

I sure won't seek out an opportunity to drive one, any more than I would seek out an opportunity to drive a Porsche Cayenne. If it happened that I was invited to go on a roadtrip in one of these vehicles, and got behind the wheel to relieve the owner, fine. I'm not boycotting them; just have no interest in them. And there is a long, long list of cars/trucks in that category.

About 5 years ago, I was looking for a new lawnmower. Got a Briggs and Stratton. Used it once. It died. Returned it. Got another. Used it once. It died.

At that point, we just said to hell with it, and got an electric mower.

646 Slap. I just spent the morning taking apart the top end of a Chinese copy of a 135 cc Honda OHV engine in my MTD (Home Depot) mower.

All I had to do was to re-align the piston rings, 120 degrees apart, and hand-clean the bore with some Kroil, along with the exhaust valve, seat and path. Cleaned the spark plug, too.

Pretty much all due to a fouled air filter system, which caused the system to run rich to the point of failure.

It now runs like a Swiss watch.

I have a Briggs & Stratton pressure washer.

It is NOT and DOES not, run anywhere as near as well as a Honda.

But it does work, after having a new carb grafted on. It is far, far more sensitive to E-85 type fuels.

652 On pressure washers, the first thing you're going to have to replace is the gaskets, but the pump will be the first thing to go if you don't let water cool it internally.

If you're not letting water flow through that thing constantly, it will burn itself out, no matter the brand-name.

I've had five different Brand-Names, but Honda is the highest quality small engine that is out there today.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at May 25, 2017 01:07 AM (XUcIQ)



YOUR view of a pickup, is an International Harvester from the mid '60s, but with late '80s Suburban things like power steering and A/C or whatever.

Honda's target market for their erstwhile "pickup" in the Ridgeline, is as I'd described. Home Depot fetcher, Scout campground hauler.

We're not at odds, here, actually.

While we BOTH highly prefer a pre-computer era mechanically functional utility workhorse, the MARKET that Honda and pretty much all the other allegedly 1/2 ton (or less) builders are selling to, is the very car-like, light hauler, barely a truck buyer.

In this, Honda will excel. They are not a stupid company in this regard.

You're a REAL truck buyer. I get and respect that.

You're NOT a "Honda Truck" buyer. I get and respect that, too.

Trust me on this though. Honda knows damn well the market they're building for, and selling to. And they will be successful there.

Take THAT to the bank.

Yeah. That's about what I was saying. Tempermental engines and stupid Governmental additives are something that small Honda engines can handle.

They can also handle 8-12+ hours of work, day-after-day for an entire Spring/Summer before you have to "tickle their undersides" with regular maintenance.

Briggs makes, or made, an "IC series" engine, with a cast iron cylinder liner, and better bearings. If you could find one of those, even a tired one, and overhauled it, it would last for several dozen years.

The Chinese engine at HF are knockoffs of older Hondas. I hear parts support for them is very poor, as is reliability. But cheap enough to be regarded as disposable, I guess.

Dig into the research. A disturbing percentage of the small Honda engines are now "Made in China".

That. Pisses. Me. Off.

Conversely, my MTD mower with the Chinese copy of the Honda motor, was the best deal I ever made.

Realtor friend of mine gave it to me, free. His listed "seller" had left it behind, and post-sale, it had to be gone from the premises.

I've been using it without fail since '08, till today.

Three hours of repair, and it's as good as new.

Honda designs good engines, even if commie pigs made the damn thing.

-------------Apparently there were 2 guns reported stolen from the police around the same time of Seth's murder just 2 miles away. I don't know if that means anything but this whole situation reeks of foul play.Shit, come on. A guy who leaked the DNC emails to wikileaks just ends up dead a few days later, randomly shot to death in the middle DC. Was ruled a botched 'robbery', yet nothing was taken from him. No arrests or persons of interests ever came up and the case was closed in record time.
Plus, leaked Podesta emails have him on record saying - just days before Seth was murdered - that he wanted to make an example of the leakers.You'd think that since Seth was the confirmed leaker to wikileaks, there would be an interest and figuring the identity of the guy's murderer. Nope. Trump and russians!
Also, the family spokesperson is apparently a chairman of media matters, who has spent every waking moment... labeling the very people trying to find the identity of Seth's murderer as conspiracy theorist.
Okay, fine. They're conspiracy theorist. Wouldn't you still want to find out who murdered Seth though? And why the hell does the family of a low level staffer need a politically connected spokesperson anyway?I don't know what happened with Seth. I just know that the 'official' story is full of shit. And the fact that the media and dems are fighting tooth and nail to keep this story from surfacing only confirms those suspicions.

I made a pitcher of flavored coffee yesterday, put into a glass pitcher* and let it cool on the stove. Once cool, I covered it with plastic wrap, using a rubber band to hold the plastic in place, and into the fridge it went. This morning it's cold enough the ice barely melts, which is the way it's supposed to be, not watered down. Plus, it beats paying, what?, four bucks out for hot coffee watered down with ice.

In the mid '60s, there was a Hardee's that was in a converted railroad tank car in Norfolk, VA. At the time, it was the only Hardee's around. Was there for a few years then it was gone. Many years later, in the late '70s-early '80s, Hardee's came back as a Southern hamburger restaurant chain. I'd never heard of Carl's Jr. until more than a decade after that.

I'd swear the burgers come pre-cooked (char-broiled) from the warehouse. The local store has the burgers in a plastic holding/warming tray which they then will nuke when an order comes in. I worked at a BK while in college and the flavor today is nothing like what I remember.

Posted by: RickZ at May 25, 2017 05:17 AM (5J6OM)

718 Mornin'

The last fast food I was down to was the dollar-menu muffin with cheese and sausage. I'd occasionally grab 2 of those and a coffee for a quick breakfast while commuting. Then BK stopped selling them, at least at my local. You can only get croissant or biscuit and I want the muffin. Other than that, I avoid fast food at all cost. I always regretted it after when I did eat it.

Living near a major retail district, I'm absolutely surrounded by fast food joints and chain restaurants. Withing easy walking distance from my pad, there's McD's, Wendy's, BK, Popeye's, Applebees, Red Lobster, TCBY, Buffalo Wild Wings, Dairy Queen, Taco Hell, Subway, Five Guys, Pizza Slut, Chipotle, Olive Garden...it just goes on and on. And I never visit any of them. So many great local places mixed in with all of those.

Yep. I make a pitcher of strong coffee. Can't be bothered with making coffee ice cubes, though.

726 To eat, or not to eat.
That is the question.
To eat, is to gain weight. Not desirable.
To eat not, is to go hungry. Not desirable.

To work, or not to work. If not to work, then to seek work, or not.

So far, the decision tree points to 'back to bed' and hope for better luck later.

729 78's would work too but the equipment to throw them at the proper velocity costs almost twice as much.

You can if you want set them up on top of a fence line and plink at them with a .22.

This ... is CNN. Obama talks Obamacare

The former president did not mention President Donald Trump directly, in line with his desire not to get pulled into a political confrontation with his successor. But many of his remarks on immigration, health care and the threats to the international order and to human rights clearly spelled out a worldview that is at odds with that of the current president.

748 There used to be this weird little record store in my old hometown, a shady ramshackle little place that sold bootlegs, tucked in among old plants in an industrial area, run by an acid-damaged old hippie. He had the entire outside of his shack/store shingled with overlapping vinyl albums and 45's. He must have bought a truckload of bargain-bin castoffs at some point, or something. The place was a local attraction-look at the store with vinyl-record siding!

They lose population everyday. Without HeyJackass, I wouldn't really know what the daily lose is, since so much space is taken up with anti Trump news. Now they seem to only have room for the real big population drops.
